TITLE: Indrani (Remake)
ARTIST: Sheldon Blackman & Drupatee
2024 marks 50 years since the great Garfield Blackman, then known as Lord Shorty and later Ras Shorty I, created Soca music. In 1973 he brought the two predominant rhythmic structures of Trinidad & Tobago together, fusing Indian & African elements to create a sound that would reverberate through the decades. Indrani is considered to be the first Soca (or as Shorty first coined it, ‘Sokah’) recording. His son, Sheldon Blackman, unites with Indo-Trinidadian legend Drupatee and hit producer Keshav to re-work this classic into a respectful yet, edgy rendition of this pivotal record. Shorty’s vision has provided the musical basis for the Caribbean Carnival as we know it today. His legacy is carried on by his children and grandchildren who admirably and actively continue their work as the first family of the genre.
